“After thoroughly examining the judgment presented by the Provincial Executive Committee (PEC), of the ANC on behalf of the PDC, the whole disciplinary process by the PEC and PDC is flawed and misconstrued. They have misinterpreted various clauses of rule 25 of the Constitution of the ANC. Therefore, a decision has been made to appeal the decision to the National Disciplinary Committee,” read the statement.

The statement further states that the appealing process means that no further action should be taken until the appeal process has been concluded. “Therefore, in accordance with rule 25.43 of the Constitution of the ANC, Cde Mandla Msibi remains a Provincial Treasurer and a member with full rights until the appeal process concludes.”
